About Katherine Woodbury

Katherine Woodbury reveres Jane Austen, "Columbo," classic fairy tales, and cats.

The author of twenty-five published short stories and seven novellas, Katherine (Kate) has spent her writing career tackling mermaids, bemused cops, Greek heroes, Joan of Arc, a devil's assistant, aliens with wings, and a not-quite-dead Viking funeral bride.

Now she's turned her writing hand to a mystery series with a no-nonsense detective and paranormal elements.

All good mysteries are grounded in social behavior. Kate began her apprenticeship of human idiosyncrasies with tributes to eighteenth and nineteenth century classics: "A Man of Few Words" (based on "Pride & Prejudice"), "Persuadable" ("Persuasion"), and "Mr. B Speaks!" (Samuel Richardson's "Pamela").

Next came the Victorian fantasy series, The Roesia Chronicles, so far including "Aubrey: Remnants of Transformation," "Richard: The Ethics of Affection," "Lord Simon: The Dispossession of Hannah," and her most recent publication, "Tales of the Quest."

As well as a writer (and reader) of fantasy, history, mystery, and romance, Kate (Katherine) enjoys watching classic sitcoms, collecting manga, and her day-job: teaching humanities courses at Maine community colleges.

Review by: Susan Skylark on March 15, 2014 :
An amusing and fairly accurate look into the mind of Mr. Darcy. If you love Pride and Prejudice, you should find this a good read.
